Orchestra Of Constant Distress

Distress Test

riot season

super limited lp + download

Released: 23rd Mar 2018


this rabble of gnarled individuals combine to marry the brutal industrial heaviness of early swans with the repetitive ethos of lungfish on this delightfully obstinate racket.

crunch, white noise, crunch, crunch, crunch goes the groove, threatening to fall apart at the seams at the same time as it sticks rigidly in exhilarating stasis. heavy as hell, challenging as heck, conceptual and yet aimed squarely at your guts. brilliant. “Just when you think something is about to happen, it doesn’t” - review
